FOZZY Frontman To Sing On FOX's 'Celebrity Duets'

FOZZY frontman and former WWE star Chris Jericho will be taking part in "Celebrity Duets" — an unscripted series that pairs singing stars with celebrities outside the music industry to make "beautiful music" together. The show will follow the professional singers as they instruct their partners, choose songs and perform duets in front of a panel of judges and a live studio audience. After each episode, viewers will vote for their favorite duets. The winning pair will emerge from the competition in perfect harmony, while the losers definitely will have to change their tune. The competition, which will be judged by producer David Foster, kicks off August 29. The celebrity contestants are as follows:

Chris Jericho - Wrestler (WWE)
Lucy Lawless - Actress ("Xena")
Cheech Marin - Actor ("Born In East LA")
Carly Patterson - 2004 Olympic Gymnast
Alfonso Ribiero - Actor/Director ("The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air")
Jai Rodriguez - Pop Culture Guru ("Queer Eye")
Hal Sparks - Actor/Comedian ("Queer As Folk")
Lea Thompson - Actress ("Back To The Future")

The contestants remaining in the competition will be paired with a different music superstar each week. Those singers include Clint Black, Michael Bolton, Belinda Carlisle, Taylor Dayne, Peter Frampton, Macy Gray, James Ingram, Wynonna Judd, Chaka Khan, Patti LaBelle, Kenny Loggins, Richard Marx, Brian McKnight, Aaron Neville, Smokey Robinson, Randy Travis, Dionne Warwick and Lee Ann Womack, among others.
